jinks: (Pete and Patrick rock the vote)
Regina Spektor – Samson



So the first time I heard this song, I was 20. My most-recent-ex-at-the-time had made me a mix CD because while we were still dating I’d heard Tori Amos’s version of Smells Like Teen Spirit (which if you’d never heard I’d suggest you listen to, like, instantly) over at hers and been like OMG, and a couple of weeks after we broke up she realised she hadn’t given me a copy like she promised and put it on a mix CD for me (because we stayed friends after we broke up. This is something I do).

But anyway, about a few months later she made me another one, and Samson was on it. Not this version; this version is on the 2006 album Begin to Hope; the version I have (well, I have Begin to Hope as well but you know what I mean) is from the 2002 Songs. I personally think the first version is better, but that’s very much a matter of personal taste.
